SHIELD #2 (Math is evil Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:13 am

Uh yeah, more silly stuff from the crazy historical gang in SHIELD. I think there were some revelations here, but I’m not sure. Is the Leonardi Da Vinci we’ve been seeing actually a decoy? Then where’s the real one? Or did the decoy just die like the real one did in the real world? The trial was also weird, why the hell choose Leonid to preside over it, he’s supposedly at the centre of this series, but he never does anything and is just boring as hell. At least the artwork was amazing and Tony Starks’ dad did something cool. Can one of the supposedly ‘intelligent people’ who gets this book please explain things to a moron like me?

I think Da Vinci is the real one and the LMD was the one that lived out the rest of his life in history. I'm still convinced that Da Vinci is really a future incarnation of Kang the Conqueror since we got yet another shot of Kang's helmet in his renaissance lab and there's enough similarities with those clothes and his regular costume. It sure as hell explains how renaissance tech can repel Galactus, time travel (especially this one) and build LMD's.

I think they chose Leonid because he has what I think is cosmic awareness (the same shit Captain Marvel had...I'm reaching though because of the star effect thing his powers have) which makes him important to this version of SHIELD.

As for Isaac Newton, bring in Nick Fury to kill his ass already. OK he's an insane mass murderer that doesn't give a shit...we get it.

Do you want all comics to be dumbed down?

There's a middle ground between 'dumbed down' and the pretentious nonsense of SHIELD.

Without sounding like trolling at all...I'm kind of glad I stopped reading the book.

I just picked up the first trade today. I only read the first two issues before I dropped all my books.

It's totally wacky, but it's a lot of fun.

Reading the first volume in one go, a lot of things unexplained or confusing in earlier issues are explained as time goes on. If it doesn't make sense now, it likely will in the next two issues.

This is the correct way to read this book.

If you think comics are pretentious nonsense, i can recommend some Reed Gunther, or other bullshit aimed at a five year old. I've been reading Shield since issue one (I actually own all the art variants), and I bought the hardcover, and I've never gotten lost once. This isn't Flashpoint or some other drek that you can scan through in five minutes. Take it, sit down, slow down, and maybe you'll appreciate it.

I don't think comics are pretentious nonsense, I think SHIELD is pretentious nonsense. I've been reading since #1 as well, and have been lost since #2. I notice you haven't actually offered any explanation, just called me stupid and acted superior. Buying variant covers doesn't make you intelligent.

Did anyone else watch last week's episode of Futurama? With 'Lando Tucker, an earnest young man with no characteristics'?

Kind of reminds me of Leonid.
